Tottenham Hotspur will clash heads with Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon as they look to return to winning ways in the Premier League. Spurs were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw away at Southampton in midweek, so they will be eager to collect all three points and gain some ground in the Premier League’s top-four race.

Antonio Conte will set his team up in a 3-4-3 formation and could make one change to his first XI for this game. Oliver Skipp might play from the start while Harry Winks makes way for him and drops to the bench.

Defence

Hugo Lloris will feature in goal for Spurs after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. Conte might opt for a back three of Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Ben Davies as they try to keep things solid at the back this weekend.

Joe Rodon will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back positions.

Midfield

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg will anchor the midfield for Tottenham as they focus on winning the battle at the centre of the park. Sergio Reguilon will function as the left wing-back while Emerson Royal looks to impress on the right flank.

Harry Winks got a start versus the Saints in midweek but will have to be content with a spot on the bench this time around as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

Heung-min Son will be a nailed-on starter on the left wing while Lucas Moura tries to catch the eye from the right. Harry Kane will lead the charge for Spurs down the middle after scoring in three consecutive league matches. We can expect the English striker to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the North London giants up top.

Steven Bergwijn will be sidelined for this game due to injury but Dele Alli should be available on the Tottenham bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Spurs are in need of a goal by then.
